Ever feel like it’s you against the world? Sometimes that’s the best evidence on the right side of an issue.

Athanasius is now a hero of the faith who was once called ‘Contra Mundum’ because he stood against literally everyone to defend orthodox Christian theology.

How about Martin Luther or his namesake MLK? What about James Hudson Taylor, or William Carey? Or William Wilberforce? Even our Founding Fathers stood against insane odds while pledging ‘their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor’ that little upstart nation became the lynchpin in the global defense against several different tyrannical regimes.

All of those victories were won only because a stand was taken when the odds were stacked against them.

Let’s bring this closer to home. What does God say about YOU taking a stand?

While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
